Last week I was organising my yarn stash and discovered this lovely raspberry colored yarn! I couldn't remember where and when I bought it, but I was definitely happy I did!:) Quite a few possible projects run through my head but I decided that this yarn was going to become a pair of wrist warmers. I used the puff stitch for the wrist warmer body and fpdc-bpdc for the cuff. I have got relatively small hands but you can easily adjust the cuff size to fit your hand. The wrist warmers measure approx. 9cm (3.5 inches) wide and 18cm (7 inches) long. If you'd like to make your own just folllow the pattern I've written up.
